A 2020 Message from the AnzaCBT President

Kia ora koutou,

2020 is drawing to a close and what a year it has been.

As has been said by many people in recent months, 2020 has been a strange, challenging and difficult year for everyone worldwide due to the unforeseen impact of COVID-19. 

ANZACBT members' plans for the year have no doubt had to be adjusted, as have those of the ANZACBT Executive. Our thoughts go out to anyone who has been, or is being adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
On behalf of the ANZACBT Executive Board, I hope all of you have a great festive season and are able to enjoy some time to relax.
Meri Kirihimete 
Ngā mihi
Ron Chambers
President, ANZACBT

Te Pou Talking Therapies Toolkit

Te Pou are pleased to announce that they have launched the first four tools from their Let’s get talking toolkit. These tools are designed to support primary and secondary services to deliver effective talking therapies, and help determine which therapies are best for their communities, as well as the skills and knowledge needed for practitioners.

The toolkit supports planning and delivery of talking therapies using a stepped care approach. We invite you to take a look at Te Pou's Let’s get talking: Introduction video which they developed to help people understand more about stepped care in relation to talking therapies.

You can read more about Let’s get talking and access the tools at www.tepou.co.nz/letsgettalking.
